"The chickapig farm was all that he knew,
With its crops and fields, and cows that poo’d
And birds, and bees, and horses and goats.
Why was he dreaming of castles and moats?

Little Joe Chickapig wants to be just like his adventurous grandpa. But how did the old chickapig hero do it? Find out in this fun, original story by Brian Calhoun, creator of the popular Chickapig Board Game."

Excerpt from pages 1-4:
"chick-a-pig
noun: chickapig; plural noun: chickapigs

1. An animal hybrid that is half-chicken and half-pig."

"Little Joe Chickapig lived on a farm,
a farm full of chickapigs and chickapig charm.
For Little Joe Chickapig, still just a boy,
The farm full of chickapigs brought him no joy.

He dreamed of new places beyond the fields,
Sailing vast oceans with swords and with shields.
He hoped he'd find courage to follow his heart.
But how could he do it? How could he start?

The chickapig farm was all that he knew,
With its crops and fields, and cows that poo'd,
And birds, and bees, and horses and goats.
Why was he dreaming of castles and moats?"

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  32 pages of fun for a little mind to soak up. I would read this outloud before bedtime because it is sweet and encourages big imaginations to soar.
